  1. I found a bumble bee on my garden path when I came home from a bike ride on Monday, poor thing hardly moving so I went in the house and put a drop of honey on a tea spoon, went to where the bee was and carefully picked him/her up, offered the tea spoon with honey to the bee and wow, from the front of its head/mouth came a black tube like thing and from that out came it's tongue and it started to "drink" some honey, anyway after a few minutes it stopped drinking and after a few more minutes it stretched it's wings and started to flap them, a couple more minutes and it took off buzzing away like

  3. I used to get all my gardening stuff from Stewarts back in the 1970's/80's, great staff who always gave me great advice, I remember all those little draws that had seeds and bulbs in them and the garden tools (although way out of my price range) were a joy to hold, just goes to show that by spending that bit more on quality tools does pay you back, I still have my long handled rake and hoe that I clean after every use and I wipe boiled linseed oil on the shafts every season end Rog

  4. We’ve just been to Newark. Kelham road is closed so we had go down the Old Gt. North Road. It was just like the seaside. Water for miles on both sides. It’s well over the bank at Fiskerton on the far side but the road is passable.

The shop premises are still there but the olde worlde interior and earthy smell of seeds, bulbs and plants will have vanished into history.

  9. An example of how politicians mislead without lying. Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire are to amalgamate into one big authorly at a cost of over £1.1 billion. According to the report put out by the council, after consultation over 53% agreed, yet none I've ever spoken to has any idea it was even suggested never mind actually happening. So how? A statement from the council:- The majority backed the proposals: (note the plural) 53% agreed with the proposals for transport, compared to 35% disagreeing. 52% agreed with the proposals for skills, compa
